If your yard has just been recently landscaped, it may be a good idea to also have a retaining wall installed on your property. These walls will ensure that sod does not slip away from the yard or create other messes. They also look great and can potentially add value to your property.

Make Sure It Can Withstand the Elements

Most people live in climates that cycle throughout the year. This means that warm months will mix with cold months to create extreme weather conditions. However, a high quality retaining wall will hold its own against extremely cold or hot weather. Find a contractor who can properly install a retaining wall that makes sense for your yard and climate.

What Will It Look Like?

There are plenty of surfaces to choose from when picking out a retaining wall. Cinder block, concrete or brick block are three of the more popular types available. Your final decision ultimately depends on your individual taste. Something that looks good to one person may not to another.

How Good Are You At Building?

While you could hire a contractor to install your retaining wall, you may decide that you want to give it a shot yourself. This is where choosing the right wall is going to be critical. An interlocking concrete block design requires no mortar and consists of interlocking pieces that go together much like a puzzle. For the landscaping amateur, this may be the best option.

How Long Will a Retaining Wall Last?

Concrete walls may be the best option for you if you are looking for something that will offer longevity. The one drawback is that plain concrete may not look the best in your yard. Make sure that you have a professional pour the concrete if this is the type of wall that you choose.

A retaining wall is a great tool that will help a homeowner protect their landscaping investment. Although there are several different types of wall styles to choose from, make sure to choose one that best suits your yard.
